43????? Wow I can't justify one let alone 43. But of course mine are only pine board stensomatic worthy. I imagine your game wall is pretty nice looking.
HAHA< yeah I have a lot of deer heads, broken up between 3 property's I have, and I used to hunt several states a yr, wa sa hunting nut for too many yrs I think, as I hunted 3+ months a yr, and thats a LOT of tree time, looking back now I think I was half nuts, and spent way too many hours sitting in tree's in poor weather! HAHA!
but I was very lucky, as a good friend of mine was a taxidermist for 20+ yrs, so he did most of my work for costs, so I got many of them done dirt cheap, and quality was top shelf to boot!
I really wish he never gave it up, as it was a huge challenge trying to found another taxidermist that didn;t SUCK, after him, he spoiled me with the quality he did, NOT to mention the price
honestly since he stopped doing them, I have yet to find one near me worth HALF what they charge, far too many do SO SO work at best!
that's one thing I really learned about taxidermist and taxidermy
most don;'t know what a POOR mount is till they get it next to a GOOD one
when you only have one, to compare things to, its hard to see the small things that are NOT right
I used to go to taxidermist events with him for and see how they judge mounts, very interesting things and great info to learn if you plan to have a few done over the yrs!
NOW so many things mounted are honestly a pain in the butt, and dust magnets
but I will die with them all, and who ever gets them after me can do as they wish, there memories to me with a little more I saved of the hunts
